“The Young and the Restless’” Judith Chapman (Gloria Fisher Abbott) is one busy dame as of late: In addition to preparing to play “Gone With the Wind’s” Vivien Leigh in an upcoming stage performance, the actress is also set to make an appearance on “The Bold & the Beautiful!”

TV Guide reports that Chapman is shooting an episode for “Y&R’s” sister soap that will be integral to the upcoming can’t-be-missed Ridge (Thorsten Kaye) and Caroline (Linsey Godfrey) fashion show. But the best hot-off-the-rack news? Gloria will be making a beeline to the wealthy Eric Forrester (John McCook) in what could develop into a new romance!

“Expect some business talk and a little flirting,” a “B&B” rep told the website. “Gloria and Eric met on ‘Y&R’ last year when he crossed over for the Victor [Eric Braeden]/Nikki [Melody Thomas Scott] wedding. She promised him then that she’d someday come to one of the Forrester fashion shows…and, well, here she is!”

Look for Chapman’s episode to air on Thursday, November 20.
